1. Internet Explorer's built-in "AutoComplete"method (Tools->Internet Options->Content (tab)->AutoComplete
2. Accepting a cookie file from the website by choosing the option to "remember me" at their log-in page.
Option 1 - all AutoComplete passwords can be cleared by clicking the button in the AutoComplete dialog box.
Option 2 - Someone could have altered IE7 so that it blocks ALL cookies by ramping up the privacy level to "Block All Cookies"
that would also stop websites from reading any existing cookies on your PC, many of which probably contain your passwords.
I don't use IE7 so this refers to IE6:
Open IE, Tools->Internet Options.
Click the 'Privacy' tab
Vertical slider should be mid-way (Medium or Medium-High) for password cookies to work.
If the slider is at the top, that's the problem.
Open Internet Explorer
